Washington, D.C. ñ ìSecretary of State Hillary Clintonís expected decision to delist the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK) from the Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list is long overdue, but a much welcomed and warranted decision,î said Poe.  ìThe MEK long ago renounced violence, and in recent years, has been actively working with US intelligence agencies to get information on activities inside Iran.  Recently, we have seen that the real terrorists are the mullahs of Iran and the tiny tyrant in the desert, Mahmoud Ahamadinejad, not the freedom fighters hoping for a democratic Iran.î

In March 2011, Congressman Ted Poe, a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, introduced H.Res. 60, urging the Secretary of State to remove the Peopleís Mojahedin Organization of Iran from the Department of State's list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. The bill has 98 bipartisan cosponsors.
